Riverbed, the Gartner Conference in Las Vegas, and AVST

Posted by riverbedtest on December 8, 2010

Riverbed is taking part in Gartner's 2010 Data Center Conference in Las Vegas this week.  

At the conference, Ben Bailey from AVST will present his company's real-world experience with the Riverbed Whitewater Appliance, a cloud storage acceleration solution that provides enterprises with a fast, secure and cost-efficient method to seamlessly integrate cloud storage into their existing backup infrastructure and disaster recovery (DR) strategies, without sacrificing security.  AVST is a leader in unified communications solutions who determined that transitioning from tape-based to cloud-based backup and recovery is an important step in enhancing their overall DR program.

When AVST initially investigated disk-to-disk backup, they found that the cost was prohibitive. AVST is now using the Whitewater cloud storage acceleration appliance to cope with a more than 70% annual increase in data volume.  It's allowed them to reduce weekend backup times by 35% – 40%, improve data restore times by nearly 30% and significantly reduce both OpEx and CapEx. 

The Riverbed Whitewater Appliance enables backups to be run directly across the public cloud, much faster than other solutions, with outstanding end-to-end security, and quick and easy restores in the event of a disaster.

  1. How does it compare to other similar cloud storage solutions, though? Do you have a point by point match up or anything?
